Abu Hamza denies US terror charge


Radical Islamist cleric Abu Hamza has pleaded not guilty to terror charges in a New York court.

He told a judge that he denied charges that he conspired with US nationals to set up a terrorist training camp in the state of Oregon.

District Judge Katherine Forrest set a date of 26 August 2013 for Abu Hamza's trial, in which he will also face charges of abducting tourists in Yemen.

The BBC's Barbara Plett described the scene in court.
